Munster Bucks present the Gold Coast Irish festival!
Join us for an evening celebrating all things Irish. Traditional folk music. Guiness, hearty food and a nod to the gatherings at ‘the local’
featuring The Munster Bucks The Stowaways and a special perfomance from Irish Dance group ‘CM Dance’
Munster Bucks, two lads from Munster, a province in the South of Ireland, and one from Australia. Tommy Donovan from Kerry (banjo and mandolin) Jack O’Leary from Cork (vocals, guitar and bodhran) and Sam De Santi (fiddle and guitar). All three of them have a rich heritage in playing traditional music both here and overseas. While keeping true to their traditional roots, they bring a unique sense of style and an irresistible groove to their tunes and songs, and they have established a strong name for themselves on the Australian folk scene. In the end, it’s basically three Bucks, who love Ireland and traditional music, having a blast and bringing the best of Irish music to your doorstep/gathering.
The Stowaways – Sebastian Flynn, Martin Reese, and Christian Rizzalli – bring their own interpretations of traditional music from near and far, crafting, in one composer’s words, symphonies in miniature. Their music ranges from sets of jigs and reels, delicate airs and songs, original tunes, to contemporary foot-stompers, featuring fiddle, bouzouki, mandolin, stomp and shruti box. New adventures include old time banjo, viola and mandola, bringing different textures and colours to their sound. The Stowaways are happy playing to people in venues ranging from theatres to bars. They have appeared at Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival and Woodford Folk festivalGet Tickets
